The first international trailer for Taken 2 has gone online. As the new trailer shows, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) didn’t really think through the whole “going on a murderous rampage to save my daughter,”-thing and now the bad guys’ families want revenge. This time around, it’s Mills’ wife (Famke Janssen) who gets taken, so this gives license for Liam Neeson to play the badass yet again. I have absolutely no problem with that. I’m assuming the franchise can continue if future kidnapping victims include Mills’ cousin, gardener, paperboy, the guy he met at the supermarket that one time, and so forth. Finally, Taken 2 looks to continue the series’ message that foreign countries are the worst places affluent white people can go. Just visit Orlando, Florida. They have Disneyworld.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Maggie Grace and Rade Serbedzija. Taken 2 opens October 5th. [Update: We’ve added the international poster.]
